  • I am so sorry to read of the passing of Joyce. I am on sick leave, but took care of her prior to that. I enjoyed chatting with her. She always amazed me. I would tell her of my plans for the weekend on Friday. The next time I took care of her, she would always ask me how my weekend was. Always remembering what I had told her I was doing. (Sometimes she would refresh my memory) She was one classy lady who will be missed by all that had pleasure of knowing her. Sincerely, Kim
